WOYWW #228 Having a good week...


Hope you are having a good week so far..I am! Hubby and I went to watch a Basketball game last night and had a great time.

I know I always say this, but where has the week gone?! It's time for us all to join Julia over at Stamping Ground for the weekly desk nosy. Go and take a peek if you don't know what I am talking about.

My desk is interesting this week..a stack of 40 for 40 cards to the far right...ready to be dispatched, some new Fiskars stamps ($1.99 a set from Marshalls), a pile of new sewing patterns - the new machine is a phone and new notepad, a KennyK image, a pen and a pencil, my glasses and a die cut Mr&Mrs for the card you can see below.

Not too tidy, but not really messy either.

Here's a close up of the stamps..

Yummy new stamps.
I made this card for my opposite number at work as she is getting married on Saturday..she is wearing blue shoes and is having yellow flowers, so I thought I'd personalise it a bit...

MioNa and Alex's Wedding card
This is the first time the Silhouette has really done what I had in my head when I bought it...I love bold matchy match type and it really works here. Yay!

Tomorrow is my 2nd outing as a DT..hope some of you join in the challenge over at MAWTT, it's a good one.

Have a good day everyone, I'll be peeking at your desks throughout the day.


p.s Julia if you are reading this...I love your blog..thank you for gifting me a fun place to hang on a Weds.
